1. Bojan Bogdanovic

Yet another Detroit Pistons player makes the list. This time, it's a veteran forward. Bojan Bogdanovic. The sharpshooting wing is an outlier on a young Detroit roster. He's the oldest by two years, at 34 years old.

Nevertheless, the veteran wing is averaging 19.7 points per game on phenomenal shooting splits. He's knocking down 45.6 percent of his attempts from the field and 37.1 percent of his attempts from downtown.

Bogdanovic isn't relegated to spot-up duty. Roughly half of his two-pointers come from assists. He can score off the bounce. The Pistons wing is a fantastic addition to any offense, as he's capable of shifting his game to any offense. He's started on three different teams, and enjoyed much success, in just the last six seasons.

Detroit is even slightly better with Bogdanovic on the court. He adds nearly seven points per 100/possessions when he's on the floor. That's quite the accomplishment given his lack of contributions on the defensive end.

Bogdanovic is the only offensive specialist on the list, and for good reason. The Mavericks rank bottom-10 in points allowed, rebounds, steals, and blocks per game.

The Croatian wing is by no means an answer to the Mavericks' defensive deficiencies, but no players on this list are fix-all options. Bogdanovic would come right in and contribute immediately on offense.

He'd likely slot in at one of the forward spots, between Derrick Jones Jr. and Dereck Lively II, two quality defensive assets.

Considering the Pistons' horrendous start to begin the season, most players sans Cade Cunningham, Jaden Ivey, and Jalen Duren are on the trade block. Given Bogdanovic's age and short contract, Detroit will assurely explore options on the trade market in exchange for the sweet-shooting wing.

Dallas has shown trade interest in Bogdanovic in the past, and maybe they will revisit those talks over the next few months.

For all the latest on the Dallas Mavericks this season, stay tuned.
